I just posed this same thing in another section before I realized it was better to just do this...


getting off suboxone has been the worst experience of my life. I also sit in my room any cry at least once a day lately .. I'm 32 yrs old and have battled an opiate addiction for almost half of my life. I am alone for the most part no friends minimal family and only one person I can talk to about it .. it was so much easier coming off harder drugs than it has been suboxone. and I can honestly say more than anything in my life right now I no longer want to be dependent on ANYTHING!!! ive read so many taper plans and methods but someone please tell me how to I measure mg of a pill in crumbs????. ive been on subs for almost 10 months I'm down to 2 mg a day I crave the little bit of energy that I get and that is what makes me take it every day. I know I a skip a day and still be able to go to work but without the subs I'm dragging a**. does anyone have any advice that could help please. anything would be appreciated. oh and I buy them on the street so I have no dr to help me.. and my connect is no longer an option.. hence the semi freaking out

Hey bud. The pills were difficult to cut up. But just cut them in half until late they are chopped to 1mg.and less. But try 1mg. Pot is good for the depression if you get depressed. Hang in there.

Hey thanks for the advice.. I smoke pot regularly.. I have a xanax im saving for when i cant stand it anymore and i also have tramadol.. Today was the first day i went to work on only the 1mg of sub i took yesterday @ 9am. And 3 tramadol and i didn't feel great but i did it and Ive veen reading more and more and i see that ppl who stop subs when down to the 1 mg point i read its not so bad. So i am much more helpful of my future.

Are u on subs or have u gotten off?? How did that work for u? Btw first time ever posting or asking or talking to someone about this online..

Thank you so much for conversing with me about this it has definitely helped me have a positive outlook for what is next to come. In the last 10 months that I have been on the subs the most of ever taken in one day was 8 milligrams and that was only once I usually would stay around 4 mg a day but now im down to 1-2 mg a day. So I skipped my dose yesterday and when I woke up this morning I felt like I wanted to die and I feel like because I skipped a dose it took twice as long and twice as much for me to get right do you happen to know if it's better to skip a dose or even just take a small dose on the days that I don't think I need it just to keep it in my system .. Had to take 3 mg this morning... do you have any experience with tha whst state do u live in if u dont mind me asking

Hi Jesss. My last post the spellchecker changed your name to Jesus. Lol Anyway how are you? That's good you can sleep. At this point you have to skip days. Suboxone stays in your system for so long that skipping one day shouldn't matter cause the previous days are still in your system. It's OK though to take your time and if you don't want to skip a day yet to take a small amount. Subs are very effective at small doses and you should feel relief quickly. I'm not in the states I'm north of you. Ýour doing great , it's got to be a big life change you did. The first couple months must have been tough eh. We're they? Why did you stop using?

Hi jesss good to hear your doing well. 5 days is a long time that's awsome. I hear ya on wanting your life back and every day no matter what having to hunt down H. It's just wasn't natural to be controlled by it. I guess it's not how we want our story to end.
I'm getting better, a little depressed low energy feel weak can't sleep well. The usual. But if this site was the sick room we would see that we're all slowly getting better, together. Thanks for your support it really helps me.
